Comes an email…
Dear Mr. Trouble
When you are serious about someone like me making money on-line, send me real information that makes money. I don’t want to purchase your on-line money making information that is the root of how YOU really make your money, (Purchases of on-line money making courses). Example: When did anyone ever pay an employer to work for them? Get my drift? I highly doubt that I will even get a response to this reply from your computer generated email posting’s,
Mr. Make me a believer
Dear Mr. Non-Believer,
I wouldn’t usually, but I’ll bite because it seems you are genuine enough. Obviously this is not a computer generated email. I write them myself every morning, first thing when I wake up.
Let’s start with this:
This main site has 1,200+ articles. Several hundred of them are business-based. I also have a Twitter that is updated daily. I also have produced some nearly 200 podcast episodes, again, not all are business, but quite a few of the recent ones are.
In all of those, I’ve covered extensively, many times, actual genuine information. Have you read all those articles and podcasts, or do you want the shortcut straight to the goods?
“When did anyone ever pay an employer to work for them?”
I don’t even understand this question, to be frank. But, I’m certainly not an employer and not asking anyone to work for me (you can ask any of my employees and they will verify I do in fact pay them).
A more apt comparison is that I am a teacher and you pay me to tutor you.
You wouldn’t expect a teacher to work for free, would you?
Nonetheless, I will drop some value to you, right here right now. As I said, this seems to be a genuine email.
Online Business Option #1
If you want to make money online, right this second, I would advise you to start freelancing.
Learn one decent skill such as copywriting, web design, or something even more technical. Make sure your profile is completely optimized. Make sure you actually deliver what you promise to your customers. Ask them to write good things about you on your profile.
Rinse and repeat this process.
Online Business Option #2
If you have more patience, or a lot of it, I’d recommend you get into niche sites.
Find a niche, get a website (here’s my recommendation) learn how to do keyword research, and write articles around the keywords.
Make sure they are at least 1,500 words long, every article. Aim to publish one a week.
Make sure you take proper backlink strategies into account and have your articles optimized to make affiliate sales.
If you do all of this properly, you should be able to make thousands of dollars a month completely passively, even stepping away from writing weekly articles after a certain point.
And yes, I do have a course about this because it is complex.
Online Business Option #3
If you have a bit of patience but not a lot, you may want to try your hand at Dropshipping, but I believe this is not a long-term business model by any means.
Of course, the key of all online business is TRAFFIC + OFFER, so you’ll need to find a way to get people to your store. The most common way is with Facebook ads. You’ll likely have to spend a few hundred dollars optimizing these.
Make sure you don’t forget customer support since the product quality is likely not what people are expecting, and be ready to handle the slew of complaints over the long shipping times from Asia.
This is all real information that can undoubtedly make you money, but you’ll have to apply it.
I looked at your account via my email provider. You have been on my email list since June 19, 2018. It appears you have opened less than 5 of my emails during that time.
You may want to look in the mirror and see that you are receiving the knowledge but are simply too lazy to apply any of it.
That’s further illustrated by the “make me a believer” stuff at the end of the email.
You and only you can actually do the work. I’ve outlined three different models in simple terms how you can do it.
Now it’s up to you.
Do you believe me now?

[UPDATE]: To this reader’s credit he responded and said this was very helpful and will try to implement some of the advice.
PS: I’ve decided to start a paid newsletter, Trouble Times.
First and foremost, verdict is still out on the name 😉
But anyways, this is an attempt to build something that will allow me to continue to write more, which is what I ultimately want to be doing.
If I can get this newsletter to X subscribers a month, I will have everything I need (and I will know it’s coming), that will allow me to make the newsletter really good, writing in-depth blog posts that will stand the test of time, and overall, creating the content that needs to be out there in the world for both men and women to live the best lives they can.
I’ve reached millions of readers over the years, basically all organically (i.e. search engines and word of mouth). I’ve never spent much on ads.
Now, it doesn’t matter what I want though, what matters is that the newsletter helps and serves you, too.
Which is why, anyone who is subscribed to the newsletter will have full access to me via email to ask any and all questions you like, as long as you are a subscriber.
There’s a little over a week left to get Volume I delivered to you, and for this time only you’ll get Volume II (released mid-May) for free.
